Episode 169: Building a Kingdom

In a very special episode of The Deucecast Movie Show, the guys are off for a week while Mikey interviews a good friend of the show, Stan Daniel.  Stan is the owner and proprietor of the local favorite comic shop, Kingdom Comics, and opens up a bit on the state of the comic & movie industry, on how he built a comic empire from an attempt at buying an X-Men comic, the unknown origins of his co-hort Jason, and the trials and tribulations of putting together not just a comic shop, but an awesome hang out.

This episode was recorded in May of 2014, and is played back now as a special ep... regular recording sessions were cut short when Mikey had to go do something stupid like, oh, I dunno, help his wife have a baby.  Pansy.

Hope you enjoy this departure from the usual!

Episode 168: Close Encounters Intermission

It's a special version of The Deucecast Movie Picture Show, as we roll out an Intermission... a chance to spend a little time on one classic film.  This time, we take on 1977's "Close Encounters of the Third Kind"!

In studio, d$, Mikey and Pinky are joined by Hurricane Rhett, who says this is one of his all time favorite films, and the gang takes on the film, it's history, behind the scenes drama, how Richard Dreyfus got the part, how director Steven Spielberg would change it if he could now and Hurricane Rhett gives a dissertation on the famous five note jingle.

Plus, you'll also hear "Dark Mashed Potato Confessions" from Mikey, and somehow, someway, Pinky steers the entire show into Lifetime movies vs Hallmark Movies, because he does that sometimes.

Enjoy this quick half hour of Deucecast awesomeness as we have ourselves a "Close Encounter!"

Episode 167: Some Childhood Favorites

The boys are back and better than ever... of course, Mikey had to bail before the episode was to begin--some nonsense about his very pregnant wife having contractions and such.  We will discuss his commitment to the show soon.

Filling in the Mikey-shaped hole, TechnoRetro Dads co-host Shazbazzar steps in as we discuss our favorite movies from when we were children.  With one growing up in the 70s/80s, another growing up in the late 80s and yet another growing up in the 90s, a wide range of films are discussed, including sharing love for The Goonies... The Secret of NIMH... The Last Unicorn... Lord of the Rings... WarGames... and does Howard the Duck hold up?  All of these and even more films you may have forgotten about.

You'll also get great discussions on the loss of Saturday morning cartoons... why ...Say Anything might not be as good as we pretend it is... a quick mention of other great Cusack films from the 80s...  who sings "Young Hearts Beat Fast" in Karate Kid... d$'s attempt to write the Mannequin novelization... Saved by the Bell... a thrilling round of Rotten Tomatoes...

And, Pinky reveals how much he loves/likes/apathetic/dislikes/hates Pee Wee's Big Adventure in Pretty in Pink!
